Ankeny High School Reviews
In a town at once was considered the 2nd fastest growing town in America, Ankeny High School Is still a school devoted to making change in every students life. Everyone knows you by name even if there over 900+ students in the entire school. If your passionate about learning something new, then teachers go out of there way to make sure you can master it!
I have been going to ankeny since 8th grade. I’m an incoming senior for the 2018-2019 school year, to be honest, I wouldn’t chose to graduate anywhere else. I moved around a lot growing up and now that I’ve consistently been in a district, it has become my home. On the contrary to my above opinion, ankeny has its tough points. I’ve done some rebellious things I shouldn’t have done and as I continue on and better myself, not only the students but some staff as well seem to have me marked to their judgement for my eternity at the school. Knowing half of the people I see don’t believe in me can hurt sometimes. Reputations are hard to reverse in ankeny. In conclusion I see going to ankeny worth some of the struggles I faced because in comparison to other school districts, ankeny is very accepting and has good nature as well as strong academics.
I am overall very blessed to go to Ankeny High School. The school itself is very clean, spacious, and looks professional and modern. The entire Ankeny Community School District does an amazing job at establishing a no bullying policy and I feel very safe and at home when I am at school. The majority of the staff and teachers at the school are layed back, but also push every student to do their best and help them become successful. They give us the option to come in for extra help before and after school, and there is even a time period every week for any student that is struggling in a class to come in and work on their assignments. The resources available to the students are in abundance, and I have never felt that I didn’t have the right materials or information to be successful in my work.
